The host town Ljubljana, the capital of Slovenia, is the political and cultural heart of the Slovenian nation. It is an important European commercial, business, exhibition and congressional centre as well as the transport, science and education centre of Slovenia.

The city, with around 280,000 inhabitants, can be considered it was built for everybody. Ljubljana is regarded as a logistically stress-free destination – its compact size allows walking between most venues and hotels, including the proposed congress centre.

Slovenia (and Ljubljana) was in 2014 proclaimed Lonely Planet‘s Best Place in Europe and one of the Europe‘s most idyllic places to live by Forbes in 2008. Ljubljana was the European Green Capital 2016.
